People would want Neal back more than you know.


And this list is based on what? Perry never opened with Separate Ways, and never performed 8, 9 or 12 live.


Yeah, but you have to think that he'd have done at least 9 and 12 had he stayed on in 1998-ish and Neal had left. He never did them live because he's never toured after the record was made.


I have a hard time thinking that this setlist would bring people back after a nostalgic "Steve Perry Returns" first tour. Way too many ballads, though I think that is what Perry would do best these days.

Neal needs to man up and perform the whole Eclipse album from start to finish, and then tack of Lights, Wheel In the Sky, Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin', Any Way You Want It, Stone In Love, Open Arms, Separate Ways, Faithfully, and Don't Stop Believin'.

If he can re-release Vortex, why not release a live version of Eclipse? Then live in concert, Neal can tinker with his songs and add new stuff.

The crowd would probably stay for a while, expecting to get the hits played at some point, because they spent $100 on a ticket, but they would never come back. Neal and management know this, so they will keep playing the hits and bringing in the cash.

Journey could do this for a one-time show in Vegas or something, and record it. Rush recorded live versions of recent albums. I guess they do it for the fans instead of just trying to be make a big payday.

Costs for high quality video probably aren't cheap, but if they could find a sponsor to bear some of the costs, a video of deep cuts, or unplugged versions might sell well with the die hards. I would buy it. I loved Night Ranger's 24 Strings and a Drummer.

Journey should do a cover of Last Chance by Shooting Star in concert. If you look at their lyrics, it sounds like something that could have been on Eclipse and it sounds like where Jonathan Cain is right now in his life.

Last Chance By Shooting Star
When the stranger came to town
All the people watched with wonder
In their tattered clothes
Gathered 'round and raised their eyes up from the dirt

And the stranger said to them
I have been upon the mountain
I have witnessed forces like cannons
that can ram you to the ground

Stand up on your feet
'Cause your life is short as hell
You could be dead tomorrow

Today may be you're last chance
To believe in yourself
Your last chance to yell
Your last chance
To be good to yourself
Your last chance
To drink from life's well

In the crowd a voice was heard
Should you get them before
they get you?
Should we strike the first blow?
He said,
No No No you don't understand

The enemy is in your heart
Self respect robbed by self content
Look across the country
All the people with their dreams

dead in their hearts

Stand up on your feet
'Cause your life is short as hell
You could be dead tomorrow

Today may be you're last chance
To believe in yourself
Your last chance to yell
Your last chance
To be good to yourself
Your last chance
To drink from life's well

And drink from the well

Oh yeah

It could be you're last chance
To believe in yourself
Your last chance to yell
Your last chance
To be good to yourself
Your last chance
To drink from life's well
Drink from the well

Oh yeah

Drink from the well....

love the first few shooting star albums, especially the single Hollywood.
But no, Journey has a tremendous backlog, with only one cover, the beatles its all too much.
Rock on Journey with deep cuts.

"If you brought somebody down from another country and played them “Renegade,” “Babe” and “Mr. Roboto,” they would think they were three different bands."


If you brought somebody down from another country and played them "Escape," "Open Arms," and "Frontiers," they would think they were three different bands. In my opinion, Journey has a wide range of music.

Acoustic versions would sound interesting and would be cool
I would like to see them tour without a package of 2 or 3 bands
